Upon first listen, OASIS, the latest track from Dabow and Singularis seems a little odd. It opens with very melodic, electronic violin sounds that do not appear in many trap songs. Crawling through the mellow depth of the track’s opening bass hits; however, suddenly they seem to work. After what is essentially a false summit drop of short and well-spaced percussion patterns, the true drop hits creating a new tension--a steady rise in intensity while the drums grow deeper in tone. This relationship, as well as a more blended drop than is typically expected in the trap genre, gives the song a sense of free falling, surrounding it in futuristic sounds and fluid eccentricity. Dabow, the side project of Argentinian DJ Wobad, and his use of unpredictable rhythm, pairs well with The Netherlands’ Singlularis and his heavy hitting bass and accentuating higher-pitched timbre choices.
